…the update is that – sadly the strawberries have died – i have since found out that it was my fault – they weren’t growing as fast the cherry tomatoes so i gave them some fertilizers & apparently that killed them. "You are not suppose to give baby plants fertilizers! You wouldn’t give a 6 mth-old baby a steak, right?", that’s what a friend who was a home-ed teacher said.
The good news is that the cherry tomatoes are growing nicely & have been re-potted so they can have more room. i ended up with 16 plants, 5 of which i have given away (the ones in the round pot) & i think 3 more (that’s 1 long pot) are reserved to be given after summer hols.
Imagine all of those plants were in that one little round pot!
Now the only problem is i think they may actually fruit while we are away for the summer – sob!
At least i have someone who will look after them while we are in SG… so hopefully they will either continue to fruit when we are back or fruit late when we are here…
